8.  We for a certainty are not the first

Have sat in taverns while the tempest hurled

Their hopeful plans to emptiness, and cursed

Whatever brute and blackguard made the world.

 

It is in truth iniquity on high

To cheat our sentenced souls of aught they crave,

And mar the merriment as you and I

Fare on our long fool’s-errand to the grave.

(God & Grave & Alcohol & Pub & Tavern)  A E Housman, Poem IX stanzas III & IV

And go to inns to dine.  (God & Taverns & Pub & Epigram)  G K Chesterton 1874-1936

42,948.  I desire to end my days in a tavern drinking,

May some Christian hold for me the glass when I am shrinking;

That the Cherubim may cry, when they see me sinking,

God be merciful to a soul of this gentlemen’s way of thinking.  (Alcohol & Tavern & Pub)  Author unknown

 

 

42,966.  Dear Mother, dear Mother, the Church is cold,

But the Ale-house is healthy & pleasant & warm;

Besides I can tell where I am used well,

Such usage in heaven will never do well.

 

But if at the Church they would give us some Ale,

And a pleasant fire our souls to regale,

We'd sing and we'd pray all the live-long day,

Nor ever once wish from the Church to stray.

 

Then the Parson might preach, & drink, & sing,

And we'd be as happy as birds in the spring;

And modest dame Lurch, who is always at Church,

Would not have bandy children, nor fasting, nor birds.

 

And God, like a father rejoicing to see

His children as pleasant and happy as he,

Would have no more quarrel with the Devil or the Barrel,

But kiss him, & give him both drink and apparel.  (Alcohol & Church & Tavern & Pub & Drink & Beer)  William Blake, The Little Vagabond

43,635.  I like bars just after they open for the evening.  When the air inside is still cool and clean and everything is shiny and the barkeep is giving himself that last look in the mirror to see if his tie is straight and his hair is smooth.  I like the neat bottles on the bar back and the lovely shining glasses and the anticipation.  I like to watch the man mix the first one of the evening and put it down on a crisp mat and put the little folded napkin beside it.  I like to taste it slowly.  The first quiet drink of the evening in a quiet bar – that’s wonderful.  Raymond Chandler, The Long Goodbye
